    10.4 failed on install and noe will not open in Ubuntu

    I installed 9.10 on a Vista 64-bit PC with AMD64 dual core. I have 3 hard drives. 1 x partitioned in to 2 for Vista and its appluications on the other partition. I have another hard drive partitioned with one for documents and the other for Ubuntu OS. The 3rd hard drive was for future backup....

    I started to install Ubuntu 10.4 with the Update Manager. It got to the stage where it had just finished downloading the new files.when suddenly, I assume as it started the install, all hell broke loose and it crashed. At first I could restart the machine and could see I had lost system info: there were no "SHUT DOWN", "Network" and other buttons and notifcation tablets on the ribbon. The Update Manage was missing bits too.

    It did suggest "re try" but that would not work. I then tried Symnaptics and did a "fix broken items". It found over 90, but could not install them.

    Then it stopped working all together. I can not gain access. It did break Vista too but I managed to get that up and running again, but I have files on the desktop, the Evolution eMail has vast amounts of stuff and I would like to keep the settings in Firefox....

    I have tried using the 9.10 CD to fix but if I go in as "trial" and use the update manager or Synaptics it can not complete the install, it says out of memory.

    I am happy to reload the OS, either one, but how do I do it without destroying my valuable data...

    I have two machines I have been working on and neither have worked! See other thread.

    Can anyone help?

    Can you start Ubuntu in recovery mode? IF you can once you get to the menu choose drop to root prompt with networking, once at the prompt type:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get -f install
    once that has finished type:

    Code:
    sudo aptitude update && aptitude -y safe-upgrade
    once the second command has completed type:

    Code:
    reboot
    that should get you to the desktop.

    When requesting help it is always a good idea to at least include you computer specs

    Whilst I appreciate the info, I have put in MANY entries and a few threads to which details HAVE been provided, just the entries ignored other than by other users looking for answers.

    I have two machines I am currently working on and a few more to do IF I can get these two work. Scenarios are different.

    From what I have seen on my machines and read in GRIB documents the issue that most seem to be suffering from, and I have as an issue with one machine is GRUB related. Certainly the new install is not happy with having Windows and multiple Hard Drives.

    PC 1. GRUB menu appears, but only Windows will load - after Repair was carried out. All Kernels listed freeze with Caps Lock light flashing and Ubuntu logo displayed. Only exit is hard restart. So, no.

    PC 2. I have virtually fixed, but now stuck at after Ubuntu 10.4 upgrades Vista will not start. It is in the GRUB menu but when selected it flashes and returns to menu. I fixed this once (before 10.4 updated) by installing another 9.10, this captured the Vista install, though I now had Vista, 2 x 9.10 and 1 x 10.4 OS... Now it has stopped again I am going to try re-installing 9.10 again.

    PS. Install of 9.10 within Windows of PC2 that rescued the first time is NOT visible post 10.4 upgrade. Wondering if the system has trouble viewing within the hard drive partition in some way

    However, that may only work if installed from within Windows, but I can't get windows open!!! How does the above work for this????

    I will try it later today.

    And to recap.
    Both machines are AMD64 - bit
    3 x Hard Drives:

    PC1 Hard drive 1 is 300G Vista and Apps
    HD 2 is 500G Docs and Ubuntu 9.10 (broken) and incomplete 10.4
    HD 3 is 700G ready to be used as backup

    PC2 Hard drive 1 is 300G used for Vista and Ubuntu (all 3 installs)
    Hard Drive 2 is Documents for access by all users on the LAN
    Hard Drive 3 is 1T backup of 2 and configs

    Re: 10.4 failed on install and noe will not open in Ubuntu

    Advice first: backup before you start this type of work

    Boot from an older version live disk, connect an external HD, mount (if they ain't already mounted) the relevant partitions on the internal and backup before you loose everything by trial and error.

    Alternative: if you're using ext2 or ext3 (not sure if it works for ext4), install a Windows driver for it (search for windows ext2) and do a similar exercise.

    Next it's up to you, I just would do a fresh install.
    If you don't make backups of your important data, your data is obviously not important to you.

    No, can not get into "recovery" as suspected. I tried in the GRUB to use command line and tried using the 9.10 CD... It was more wishful thinking. Can't see why it does not have an option to select a kernel to work on... Would be nice. Add to wish list.

    I am going to try coping folders via Windows in to spare space on HD, if I can. Where does anyone know which folders will have settings and docs. I assume HOME is one, but it is the Evolution databases that I am also interested in.

    Then re install.

    Re: 10.4 failed on install and noe will not open in Ubuntu

    I would think we might be able to fix this in a chroot as I instructed here:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1470597

    But that set of commands was specific to that users machine and situation!

    So, if you want to try that approach (and have a Live CD handy) I need a bit of info. The easiest way to gather the needed info would be to post the results of the Boot Info Script using a Live CD as described here:

    http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/

    Thanks for this..... Give me about half an hour and I'll be back at my PCs and will try these out.

    I have two machines not working:

    This one, which I enclose will not open Vista. It is in the GRUB and worked fine until I did an update in 10.4, and now it will not start. Every time I select it from the GRUB menu it reverts to the menu again....

    The other for which I will now try and run this, I have the opposite. This install failed just after the download packages as it was starting to install 10.4. As a result it damaged the 9.10 installation. The Kernel is listed but it freezes after start... all version of Ubuntu.

    If we can fix the first then if happy can we look at the other machine?

    But that set of commands was specific to that users machine and situation!

    So, if you want to try that approach (and have a Live CD handy) I need a bit of info. The easiest way to gather the needed info would be to post the results of the Boot Info Script using a Live CD as described here:

    http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/

    And for the other PC, that I think the matter reaches further then just the GRUB:

    I have enclosed in pdf as it would not paste correctly.

    Give me a bit. I see we're talking about two computers now, but we need to focus on one at a time, OK
